Project | Youth Participatory Action Research New


With participatory action research (PAR), a tool for youth engagement, NAF supports the creation of new spaces within academies for youth-centered approaches to knowledge and power-sharing to advance more equitable learning experiences and environments. NAF will use the insights gathered from PAR to support youth-informed and youth-led, local decision-making and planning within NAF academies and to share the organization’s work externally.
